The Intercept, Raw Story and AlterNet Sue OpenAI and Microsoft

HeadlineMar 01, 2024

In media news, The Intercept, Raw Story and AlterNet have sued OpenAI and Microsoft, accusing their generative artificial intelligence products of copyright violations. The outlets say their copyrighted content was plagiarized and used to develop and operate the popular AI tool ChatGPT. Raw Story and AlterNet CEO John Byrne said in a statement, “It’s important to democracy that a diverse array of news sites continue to thrive. OpenAI’s violations, if not checked, will further decimate the news industry, and with it, the critical news reporters who affect positive change.”
